I want you to LIVE BIG—to go all out, to take great leaps, and to take big risks even if you are afraid of failure...especially when you are afraid of failure.
Finally, I want to help you love the journey. To love the dips and proverbial knee scratches that inevitably come from living a life of purpose and greatness.
